Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale was “confident” of avoiding an upset at Bloomfield Road.
The 27-year-old, who avoided a repeat of his horror show in his last home game against Swansea, said: “We were going for it a bit more so we got caught a few times.
“We might have been more patient, but I’m confident going up there as well.
“They will fancy their chances up there but we have to play the same way with the same attitude. I think the goals will then come.”
Stockdale insisted Fulham should have sealed a place in the fourth round yesterday.
He said: “We dominated the game but a silly bit of defending cost us. We had a enough crosses and chances to get more out of it.
“It wasn’t to be be but we have to keep the faith. Blackpool was never going to be walkover.”
Fulham named an unchanged side yesterday, demonstrating their commitment to the FA Cup.
Stockdale, who could lose his place in the side to Mark Schwarzer when Fulham’s number one recovers from injury, said: “It is a great cup and everyone loves it.
“We would love to get to the final.
“The manager has not been there. Only a handful of players can say they have been there.”
